as the next united states senator, someone who has independent stances not based on party. my record is one of avoiding unnecessary taxes as well as imprudent spending. i am fiscally responsible. my record in the state legislature, which was some time ago but still relevant, was one of fiscal prudence. and i believe the top priority for the next connecticut senator is more jobs for the nation and economic revival, and that will be my priority, and it has been also in enforcing anti-trust laws, consumer laws, and i have done so vigorously and aggressively because i believe that small businesses are protected as well as consumers. >> what you hear, and these are among your opponents, to be sure. they say dick blumenthal as attorney general all these years was too good, that you brought too many lawsuits against businesses, that you committed too many regulations, that you supported too much tax increases in the connecticut legislature, and, in fact, an odd statistics not so odd. in connecticut, since 1991 -- that's a long time ago -- there has not been a single net new private job created. th
is broader than that. that basically that is an investment into the united states staking its claim into the green energy marketplace, that china will otherwise eat our lunch in terms of green technology and this is a sector more broad than simply the number of jobs that you mentioned, that if we get out in front of this sector, it will have ripple effects that are broader than that. but about the problem for them is of course that none of the effects come very quickly. fechb they're right. and it's a debatable point, but it's a slow acting kind of stimulus in any event. >> i agree. i think this is going to be a very tough thing for them to sell. you've got $170 billion stimulus package alledgedly for jobs coming out of house. we haven't heard from the senate. it's like more and more spending and what is the yield in terms of jobs? that's the problem. >> you can bet they're hear from the senate when they get these numbers. washington was hoping, the white house was hoping to have a positive jobs number as you know today even if the unemployment rate wasn't going to go down. this is
that not adversely affect the united states, because china liquidity has been a major stock for the liquidity factor. >> in theory it does, it depends on how high they raise it. i don't think they're going to do something that's going to be that dramatic, that's going to undo what's happening. because quite frankly, my view of that, larry, is that china needs us more than i need them. we're on very, very fragile ground, but i think we do see that inflation out there. i do think they'll move, but i think it will be a very, very slow move and i think it sets the stage, quite frankly, for the u.s. to make the move, and i think the fed will probably make that move after the congressional election. i don't see any way they can raise rates before that. >> but the fed's not going to move, they're going to buy $1.9 trillion of new debt, inflate our way out of the problems to get a bunch of congressional people through the elections. what a lot of crap that is. quentin hardy, has this stock market rally peaked? >> i don't see consumer demand, and that's the engine for it. yeah, i'm afraid so. >> bob froehlic
in the united states, railway companies bring things that are imported from china. noticeably like massie, for example. stocks were down here. we're waiting and in about two hours, larry, we're going to get the china gop numbers. that's very important. we're talking about numbers over 10%. we should have these problems in the united states here. big source of concern over there. >> bob, two quick questions for you. appreciate your time this evening as always. number one, do we assess too much about some modest credit tightening from china? we're going to have to do it, so i'm thinking if we are panicked in the u.s. stock market over soc some modest chinese tightening, what are the feds going to do? i think it will happen in my lifetime. what does that mean? >> unless we see noticeable growth in the economy -- before that, you're going to see the kind of reaction you got here today. the chinese reaction is very reasonable. they've got stimulus measures that are out there, they've got very low-cost lending and they've got an economy growing at over 10% a year. they've got good reason to be
of it is the manufacturing and industrial sort of center in the united states. >> you just got through telling me that the energy cost increase is damaging the earnings of alcoa. the weak dollar is directly responsible for that energy cost, jim. now you can have it one way or the other but you cannot have it both ways, my friend. you touted that -- you're saying you're going to hang yourself on your industrial because the hike in oil prices and energy prices are going to hurt those industrial costs. and profits. but -- >> but what's also happened is industrial prices, topline pricing for industrial manufacturers is exploded to the upside. for alcoa, for example, the aluminum future's prices were up over 20% in the fourth quarter. 45% year-on-year. and that's what's contributing to all that almost 8% revenue gain that alcoa posted in their topline. >> i hear you. i'm saying you need earnings. earnings are the -- profits. topline sales, terrific. you're right. earnings are so important. i'm a bull on this question. i'm just kind of making you go through your paces because i saw an inconsistency. mi
to something in 1975, can they serve customer demands, can they serve corporate demands in the united states and around the world, continent after continent? that seems to be tim geithner's worry according to steve liesman's reporting and other reports. can you you foe back to u reports. can you you foe back to you go ? >> we spent 50 years eroding glass-steagall. we had the 56 bank holding company act. they created section 20 subs in 1982. they expanded the range of activities bank holding companies could do precisely because u.s. banks were being disadvantaged on a global market. we're the only -- we were the only country with that universal banking. they were going to europe. >> so we should follow the european example, the german banks, the disasters over there? it's not the job to say whether our banks are competitive or not. it's their job. >> but the rope they have it is because we've made a decision as a society we do not want to live in a place where if your bank fails you have to go get in line to get your money out. >> if my scheme, you would have no one in line because someone wh

of the global economy in spite of what's going on in the united states not because of it. that's a real change in mind set. i still think any investment that is tied to the growth of china is a good investment. >> michael, as said today, the leading indicators are strong, all the credit spreads are narrowing, the funding costs are very low because of all of this cheap money. are you going to ignore that stuff? you're going to have 4% mini boom this year in 2010. even going to get some job creation, profits up 25%. what's wrong with that? >> larry, you know when we last saw all that? the spring of 2007. remember that? >> i do. i do. i do. i was a bull, you were a bear, and you were right. i was looking good for a while there, a good five-year run. but it kind of cratered on me. the clock passes 12:00 twice a day, that's why i'm asking, how bearish are you? >> i think everybody held on, american population, businesses, everybody held on in hopes that we would recover. there's a lot less resiliency in the system, there's a lot less resources available and next big bad wave of the economy's going
, certainly people who live in the united states, people who live in europe and other parts of the world, that seem to be being surveilled, or at least that their accounts are being compromised. and that concerns us very much. now, it's clear, i also want to make clear that the means by which these accounts are compromised, again, was not through google, but we believe very likely through scams, what we call internet phishing scams, and other techniques where they infect your computer by putting software, say someone sends you an e-mail, you think it's from someone you know, it has a link, you click on the link and all of oh sudden you have software that reads what you do, perhaps sends the information back to the hacker, et cetera. we're urging people to be very careful, to have the latest anti-virus software, anti-spyware software on your computer. have the operating system patches that you get from microsoft and other companies. >> so it could be -- >> just make sure you take care of yourself. >> it could be american computers? it could be my computer? that's conceivable? >> it's conc
would say it's bullish because it creates. >> because we're going bankruptcy in the united states? >> the bottom line is the debt of the nation is increasing dramatically. we have a $106 trillion projected debt and that must be monetized and that will send gold higher. i want to say two quick things about the economy. we continue have retractible inflation or hyperinflation. the consumer has twice as much debt as they did in 19 3 and total loans and leases are down 7.7% year to year. there's going to be no boom. maybe a little one. >> i want to know your single favorite investment. >> right now. >> yes. >> right now, sqm, im gold, gg. >> jim, you're single favorite investment after you have seen everything out of washington and the possibilities of relief in this massachusetts race, which we'll get to later in the show, and the fundamentals of profits and economic growth and jobs and what not, what is your single-best favorite investment? >> emerging markets on a broad basis and energy on a long-term basis. >> elaborate on the emerging markets. you're playing a weak dollar play on
